As we covered here previously, the Harvey Weinstein trial ended with a couple of convictions and he’s still facing a new trial on sexual assault charges in California. Given his age and health considerations, people are already wondering if Weinstein might consider taking the fast way out, as Jeffrey Epstein allegedly did. (Insert hashtag for Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself here at your leisure.) So what is the New York correctional system planning to do about that? Quite a bit from the sound of things. (NY Post)
Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein will get special treatment in custody — because officials fear another “Epstein incident,” sources told The Post.
Still reeling from the uproar after pedophile Jeffrey Epstein managed to hang himself in his Manhattan lockup last year, jail officials are taking extraordinary steps to monitor their newest high-profile inmate.
Weinstein will always have his own cell, will constantly have a dedicated team of correction officers with him — and could even be shipped to a facility outside the city, sources said.
Is this really an issue? Of course, as soon as I typed those words I realized that it’s obviously an issue. The general consensus is that Epstein might have killed himself, but that’s far from obvious and a lot of questions remain.
